Why Bills Don't Get Passed?

Updated on August 9, 2014

Harry Reid's butt cheeks have been chaffing since the mid-term elections of 2010 when the majority of Americans got fed up with Obama and his minions ramming Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling America and turned the Democratic Party majority out of the House of Representatives. His buddy Barack Obama is fond of calling Congress a "do nothing" Congress and many of his sheeple who still worship at his altar seem to still be gullible enough to slurp on his koolaid even after his propensity to tell endless lies to the electorate.

We, the People...need to send another strong message to Obama and his minion this November and turn out the useless Democrats but this time in the US Senate which will effectively neuter Harry Reid. Though he may live out his latest Dirty Harry term of office he has no business being the US Senate Majority leader for even another day much less two more years.v

Why do I say that? Lets watch this video where Representative Lynn Jenkins lays out FACTS and not Obama spiel.

352 Reasons To Change Reid's Diaper

People accuse this writer of being a Republican and a partisan this, that and the other and none of that is necessarily true. What I am is a patriotic American who expects the people we elect to collectively put their feeble brain cells together and pass legislation that will help, not hinder, the American tax payer and be wise stewards of our hard earned tax dollars. In case you haven't noticed that isn't happening on Capitol Hill. That is by design on the part of both Barack Hussein Obama and one Harry Reid the obstructionist partisan hack. Some people hunger for power and Harry Reid is among the worst of the worst. I call that unpatriotic myself.

What Lynn Jenkins pointed out is the truth and not more lies and cover-ups by Reid and Obama though those are plentiful these days. Numbers never lie but the Lame Stream Media is complicit in this advancing of the Reid./Obama lies concerning the legislative process and what has occurred, who did what and who is obstructing what. The fact that 352 bills have been sitting on the United States Senate Majority Leader's desk with no action is a travesty to our democratic process. We elect legislators to legislate and write laws to govern this nation. We didn't elect Barack Hussein Obama to legislate from the Oval Office as that isn't in his job description or even encompassed anywhere in his experience level for that matter.

Let me lay out what Representative Jenkins stated onto this page for you visuals among us you can read, and maybe comprehend, exactly why Harry Reid is presiding over that "Do Nothing" Senate that Obama fails to include in the word "Congress." Of course he won't call Reid out because Reid effectively out ranks Obama.

Of those 352 bills passed by the US House of Representatives and now sitting on Reid's desk:

  • 98% were passed with bipartisan support. Reid refuses to let the Senate consider that.
  • Nearly 70% passed with 2/3rds of the House member's support. Zilch % from Reid and company.
  • 50 percent plus passed with no opposition what-so-ever. Reid does nothing in the Senate.
  • Of the 352 there were 55 proposed and passed by the Dems. Need I say anything further about Harry Reid?

,In reality having had to listen to Harry Reid pontificate to an adoring Lame Stream Media, which lacks the testicles to call these idiots on their follies, I believe Reid has gone either senile or belongs in the loony bin. Maybe both?

No one in either the delinquent press corps, or Obama himself, has bothered to ask Harry Reid why he is sitting on 352 bills that have the possibility of helping the American people rather than exercising his obstructionist Democratic agenda in trying to maintain his power. Now we can't fire Harry, which is what should happen, but we can change the face of the US Senate by making him irrelevant. This isn't about what is best for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. It is what is best for the citizens of this nation and that excludes any soul who came to this nation illegally because they wanted to.

So here we have a party of one, Harry Reid, refusing to bring up bills passed by the US House of Representatives and sent to the US Senate for their consideration. Ask yourself why? And if you care one iota for this nation, whatever your political party affiliation, ask yourself if you find that acceptable?

The Inmates Are Running The Asylum

It is apparent now to the majority of Americans that Barack Hussein Obama was one huge mistake. Look at his approval ratings. Then look at the fact that 71%, plus or minus, of the American people say that our country is on the wrong path. Blend into those figures the fact that Harry Reid, who if there ever was a traitor is one, sits on a stack of legislation with the statistics presented here about said legislation and tell yourself again that everything is going to be just peachy keen.

I always attempt to blend common sense and logic into my thinking and this scenario doesn't make sense or is it logical. We are paying people, such as Harry Reid, to do what? Obviously nothing. And if Obama cared about this nation, which I seriously doubt, he would call it like it is - the United States Senate is the problem since its ruler is a do nothing type political hack.

My other indictment will continue to be the fifth estate and their being the cheerleaders for sure disaster if this mess continues. The "Congress" consists of two legislative bodies Mr. Constitutional Scholar President. Try calling Harry Reid out and get those 352 bills off his desk and to your desk for signature. That would show leadership and your continual droning on speeches do not accomplish that task. From you we get just more partisan rhetoric.

Maybe, just maybe, the media needs to spend more time doing what they are traditionally have been charged to do by the American people. What would that be you may ask? Their job should be to be a government watchdog and that doesn't include being the cheer leading squad for the Democratic Party. If they also started calling Reid out maybe, just maybe, Harry Reid would start getting things done in the US Senate and they could at least attempt to earn the pay checks we allow them to collect.

Do I have that happening? No really until We, the People make it happen during the election of 2014. That worries partisan hacks like Harry and make him act the loon he obviously is and spout complete nonsense. The US Senate just went home for a 5 week vacation having done what? Essentially NOTHING.

Mind sharing this? I didn't think so...

As Always,

The Frog Prince

      Frog - I mean why doesn't the military arrest him. He has done enough to ruin this country already, why don't the sheriffs or the military do something about it? I fully realize the 'good ole boy' system. But his reckless actions and lawless ones go far beyond that! Somebody whould have the kahunas to stop this train wreck! Where is von Stauffenberg when you need him?

      Your opening statement had put all other things in perspective for me. The government is far from what it orginally was set up to do for the people. Taking it back? We must!

      again, great artwork

      Neither party has a real plan, but the republicans are definitely the lesser of the two evils.

      We really can't change the direction of the congress with the existing system, because it is like tic tac toe, there is no way to win.

      I would suggest, a change in the structure of congress.



      current is 2 senators

      R R

      D D

      R D

      D R

      In this system, there is no condition that gives the power to the people.

      I would add a third senator for each state, and they would be fixed as to party.

      There would always be

      one D

      one R

      one Independent

      So with the exception of fragmented Independent, Ninety plus percent of the people would have representation of their party.

      This would be a fixed structure

      It would remove gridlock because there are three parties. So the D or the R would have to work with the I to win.

      Currently the D and R know with a high precision how many of their registered voters will support their candidates, so it is a simple math problem that involves how much of the Independent vote does one party need to beat the other party.

      The Independent parties are not currently a power factor, but that is because they are fragmented into many different independent parties. But one day they could be as powerful as the D or R parties.

      The House would be a little more complicated but with the same idea.

      Yes this would probably bring the total members of congress to around twelve hundred. But today we are fifty states, not thirteen. We over three hundred million people and growing.

      California alone has thirty eight million people, and the state is so large that there is no common issues for the entire state. It should really be made into at least four new states, and possibly six.

      The point is that the current system has run out of gas, except for the politicians, but it has no energy to move the country forward.

      If you don't do something different then don't expect a different result.

      That is the definition of insanity.

      Perhaps someone can come up with an answer to this question: Why doesn't someone in either the House or the Senate, or just anyone step forward and arrest this man? Surely there is someone, the military even, who can arrest him. He is as illegal as a three dollar bill, so what is wrong with everybody? Surely in their right minds, no one would be allowed to get away with everything he has gotten away with so far - so what's the problem?? Are we all idiots? It sure looks that way to me.

      Not exactly, Frog.

      Reid, and all senators as well as our president are being paid right now to go on vacation. Paid very well I might add, I guess because they are experts at what they do, which is basically nothing and/or go on vacation, of course not on their dime but on the taxpayer's dime.

      Harry Reid is in his second childhood; I cannot believe people in our government are allowed to act that way! What is he getting paid for?

      This actually is the "most important election in history" because we need to take back the Senate and get some important work done. If not, we might as well pack it in and become one of the clueless "sheeple." Voted up and awesome, Frog Prince.

      Obama elevated himself into the high office of president on the promise of "Hope and Change". What too many who voted for him fail to understand is that "Hope" does not beget "Change"---"Hope" only gives one courage to continue in the present. "Desire" begets "Change" because it invigorates the "Will". The "Will of the People" is beginning to show up in the numbers because their "Desire" for change is gaining momentum---they are sick of the lies and "flim-flam" and sick of seeing their country trashed by a bunch of Socialist and Islamic sympathizers. Harry Reid is complicit in this journey down the wrong path as he is doing exactly Obama's bidding by rendering the legislative process null. This gives Obama his rationale to throw mud at the Republicans and to stretch executive actions beyond the scope of his job. Speaker Boehner is also part of the problem in that he foolishly stated publicly that "impeachment is off the table". Why not send Obama an engraved invitations to violate his powers under the Constitution? The "Desire" of the people will change this on both sides of the aisle--some Republicans are going to pay a high price for sitting by and allowing Obama and Co. to run roughshod over the Constitution while threatening to play the race card at every turn. If a person soliciting my vote cannot stand up to the threat of the race card being played, then I certainly do not want them making decisions about the future of this nation.

      Reid is a dictator, and he won't submit anything to the floor he doesn't like unless a supermajority of Senators force him to by roll call vote, and that's not going to happen. It's a real tragedy because if the House and Senate can get together on some good bills, it would place Obama in a lone political corner, and he would sign some bills that he otherwise would have vetoed because he won't want to be alone when blame for failure gets assigned by the public. But Reid is giving Obama a "political pass" to avoid signing critical legislation, as well as illegally legislate from the Oval Office via EO's ("Congress can't pass anything, so I have to do it myself"). And we both know Holder's DOJ won't do anything about the latter (even though it legally has the capacity to via equity petitions to vacate unconstitutional EO's in the federal district court system). My opinion is that if enough Democrats can find common ground with GOP's in the House to pass 352 bills, then at least some of these would pass in the Senate too, if Reid would at least allow floor debate and a vote on them. But, as I said at the start, Reid is a dictator, and what the Senate wants as a whole doesn't matter to him except when it suits his own purposes.

      I read an article stating that it is well known that anyone asking for help from Harry Reid must bring a suitcase full of money with them, or no help will be offered. Why doesn't the press follow up on reports such as this one?

      Harry Reid is the worst thing that has ever happened to America with perhaps one exception, and we all know who that is.

      Very precise. If one looks at Harry Reid's political actions from his home state of Nevada, all of this would make perfect sense. Personally, I have to wonder if he was chosen because he is and always has been so corrupt politically.

      Three jackasses:

      7 out of 10 Americans agreed that the nation is headed in the wrong direction. The 3 that thought differently were Pelosi, Reid and Obama!

      EXCELLENT writing Frog Prince!

      Each year, we keep on hearing "This is the most important election in Americas' history!"

      Well.... "Hope & Chance" has been defined in the arena of "The Cloward-Piven Strategy!" Should America desire our country to become the failing Socialistic nation that all others are so trying so desparately to leave, it will be decided come November.

      My prayer is that Barrack Hussein Obama will go from a "Lame Duck" to a "Dead Duck" President with no fewer than 10 lost Democratic Senators seeing America is STILL "One nation, under God, with Liberty and Justice For All!"
